ALWAYS LOVED LOOKING LIKE A RICH GIRL GONE HOMELESS, OR A HOMELESS PERSON WHO HIT THE RODEO DRIVE DUMPSTER JACKPOT. someone who pulls off this look as an example: the deceased painter, jean michel basquiat.
Here’s an old outfit I pulled together in 2007 that is still one of my favorites today:
Cashmere/sequined argyle Prada sweater, Chloe caramel coloured silk and cashmere cardigan with dark brown buttons and ample sized pockets, jeans by D&G, several Hermes bracelets on one arm (enamel & leathers) and an Hermes twilly scarf as a bracelet on the other arm, fingerless gloves from Maxfield in LA, huge black and heather grey cashmere scarf/shawl by Louis Vuitton, black suede and gold Mary Jane booties by Louis Vuitton, & two little Vuitton monogram teddy bear brooches. Go a step further and mix patterns with the layering, substituting the booties with a pair of black/white polka dot Chanel shoes, maybe with some opaque tights or patterned socks peeking out at the sides.
I have an outfit in mind for next round. It includes mostly Chanel. Chanel done homeless. I feel like a pervert.
